The combination of the three businesses has created a company with some $700 million in total revenue, 12 facilities across seven states and long-term relationships with many North American food companies and retailers. Hearthside will offer its customers diverse manufacturing capabilities across a variety of baked foods, including cookies, crackers, granola and cereal bars, snack mixes and cereals.

Hearthside, with a facility in Grand Rapids, Mich., also produces croutons, cereals, popcorn and snack mixes.
